Winter Update

For me, Sundays are always a great day for journaling and reflecting and today while I was staring into nothingness I realised what a whirlwind this Winter has been! I truly cannot believe it’s coming to an end so soon. Where does the time go, honestly? I do love everything about Winter despite the cold but I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t beyond excited for to wear Spring clothes and for the change in the temp. Bring on the summer beach volley ball games and beach days too!

August is such a birthday month and August 8th (Charlotte’s birthday) is arguably my favourite day of the year! We both worked the whole day but we spent the evening surrounded by good food, Moscow mules and the warmth of the fire. My favourite kind of Winter night.

 

Kicking off the month, it was a getaway to Ohakune for Snowball. While meant to be a weekend of snowboarding and skiing it turned into more of a dancing and drinking sort of weekend – due to a minor foot (escape-room-related) injury. It was nowhere near as cold as it expected and the locals were as friendly as ever.

 

I also found my new favourite restaurant recently. SEVEN KITCHEN in BRITOMART. I love everything about it.

 

And last weekend we made a spilt decision to pack up our stuff and head up north for a few days. Highlights were the sing-a-longs and re-discovering old bach board games. On the way home we made a tactical pit stop at a winery and the food (and of course the company) could not have been better. It’s a little mission of mine to spend more weekends escaping the business of Auckland city – I can’t wait to pack in more adventures in the upcoming months…

 

 

 

That’s all for now. I thought it was time for your monthly update from me, I have been doing so much writing for other contracts that I have barely had time to post.

This is the end of yet another insane week running around for New Zealand Fashion Week plus it’s 10:30 pm which means it’s my bedtime haha. If you’re going to back to uni tomorrow GOOD luck! I’m such a nerd and always LOVED the first day of school or university.
